Bocked culvert along Rectory Road

Reported via desktop by Alan Reimer at 19:57, Fri 18 December 2020

Sent to Hertfordshire County Council and Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council less than a minute later

This culvert drains a ditch north of Rectory Road. It is about 100 metres east of the entrance to the Sherrards Park car park. The volunteer wood wardens tried to unblock this culvert, but with the equipment that we had, we were not able to do so.

  • This has not been fixed & can't be closed. I went there today to check this. I encolose 2 photos. One shows flooded part. If this is fixed, the water level should not be that high. The other shows the other side of the entrance. If the culvert was clear, water should be flowing out. The photo shows no flowing water, only a static puddle.

  • My apologies, the 1st pictures had refered to the blocked culvert at the entrance to Sherrardspark Wood. The latest picture refers to the blocked culvert further along the road from the entrance. If this culvert was clear, the picture should show flow water, but it doesn't.
